Little Nelly told little Anita what she termed a "little fib."
ANITA—"A fib is the same as a story, and a story is the same as a lie."
NELLY—"No, it is not."
ANITA—"Yes, it is, because my father said so, and my father is a professor at the university."
NELLY—"I don't care if he is. My father is a real estate man, and he knows more about lying than your father does."
